Today, Upstater’s at a c.1925 home in Rockland County’s Stony Point with amazing details.
The first floor is encased in stone, with gray cedar shakes up top and fish-scale shakes above them. A swoop of gray shingles covers the gambrel roof. The front porch is just big enough for a chair to catch the breeze.
The entry showcases a patterned wood floor and deep-toned woodwork around the door and windows. A chandelier swings overhead.
Old-time craftsmanship is evident in the staircase, which has a built-in bench and carved spindles. It’s in good shape but could use a little refinish.
The living room has diamond-pane windows above standard ones, bringing in lots of light.
The kitchen has a light tile floor and dark cabinetry, topped with black granite.
Hints of exposed stone add character.
The gas cooktop and oven below separate the prep area from a dining area, and an opening that overlooks…
…a great room that was a later addition. The cool part is the exposed stone that was once the outside of the house, replete with cellar windows. Skylights pepper the vaulted ceiling. Another staircase (to the left of this scene) leads to the cellar.
And what a “cellar” it is. A true entertainment cave, it’s got a bar and the same gray tile as the family room.
More exposed stone make up the walls of this fun room.
Upstairs are three bedrooms. They all feature hardwood floors and vintage doors.
The house has two full baths, but just one is pictured in the listing. It has a ceramic tile floor, a glass-block shower, and thick wood trim around the windows.
The primary bedroom has a trio of windows.
This bedroom has what looks like double closets.
A detached garage and lots of driveway space allow for plenty of parking. It’s a two-minute drive to the Hudson River and a plethora of marinas for river recreation.
The 3,774-square-foot house is on a third of an acre. It’s on a fairly busy road, but its vintage details will definitely charm the right buyer.
